One of the more interesting things about Croatian winemaking are her many unique terroirs. A robust, mighty Plavac from stone vineyards of Pelješac i totally different from suppler, more elegant Plavacs from Hvar island. One of the strategic goals for the future growth of Croatian tourism is to get international recognition of Croatian wines as one of the most important and representative elements of local indentity.
